    I have an Fender American Deluxe Jazz V for $1,175.00, shipped.
    *more pics, later in the thread

    It needs a little fretwork, as there is a high fret or two, after the 12th fret. affects D + G strings. Mostly the G.

    There is also a minor scratch above the bridge. It happened during a difficult b-string installation. The scratch is tough to see and would likely buff out pretty well. It is not a serious scratch, but I would say it is worse than a "hairline" scratch.

    Otherwise, it is in great shape.

    3-piece Alder body.
    Neck is asymmetrical profile with satin finish
    the fretboard may be compound radius. Prettey sure that it is.
    reinforcement rods in the the neck
    bound and blocked
    What I would call a "medium mass" bridge
    String through option
    carved neck heal
    Will ship in other brand hard case. Decent, clean. (as seen, in pics)

    This bass has an inherently deep and clean tone, when played unplugged.

    Not an anchor. 9lbs 10oz. Feels like 9.

    The "new" Elite Jazz basses seem to be very similar in features. Price increase and different pickups, being the standouts.

    Weighed on a decent digital scale for food: 9lbs 10oz. A few more ounces than I had guessed.
    It turns out, the pic above does not show the actual scratching. That was just a scuff, near the scratch. I was not able to capture the scratch.

    I sighted down the neck and I am pretty sure this does indeed have a compound radius fretboard. I tried to show it in the final picture. I do know for sure that the neck profile is asymmetrical.

    Here are some pics from an ok digital camera. The color isn't accurate, but the overall quality is sharper:
